Is your 501(c)3 organization ready to dive into initiating and/or growing your donor fund raising using a special event strategy? Partnership with the Museum of Visual Materials might be just the right thing to advance your fund development efforts. More information and the link to an application can be found below.
The Museum of Visual Materials has chosen to implement its charitable mission by helping sister nonprofit organizations to advance their missions through special event fundraising. The Museum is seeking applications from nonprofit organizations expressing a specific goal of developing, refining, and/or building a new special event fund development effort. The selected nonprofit organization will have a three-year relationship during which time they can develop, test, implement and refine a special event as part of their fund development strategy. The outcome for the selected organization is a tested event that can repeat year over year to bring awareness and funds to support mission work.
The selected nonprofit will have access to historic building space to hold its event, build sustainability of the event, and increase funding outcomes. The Museum’s active promotion and marketing of events along with ticketing and related services are included as part of the resource opportunities provided to the selected agency partner. All services are provided with only the direct cost of service coming back to support ongoing sustainability of the Museum during the three-year implementation cycle. The Museum will provide detailed technical assistance, document efforts, evaluate what works best, and report evaluation outcomes to the selected partnering nonprofit. The effort will initiate in July 2019 and conclude no later than April 2022.
